For as far back as I can remember, my father would come back from work in the evening, shower and grab a cup of tea and fire up a shortwave radio to tune into BBC World Service.

It is not as if I actively focused on Dad's radio. I went about whatever it was I did in those evening, with the voices from the radio floating around in the background.

As I grew older and left my parent's nest, it became apparent that pieces of that background voice noise had gotten embedded in my mind, without me being aware of it. Obviously, it got to a point where I had to find a way to tune into BBC World Service.

In the pandemic and politician stressed year 2020, BBC World News has done for me what no other audio or visual medium has done - calm me down. So, here are some ways to tune into BBC World News.
